parody of Atlas Shrugged

FYI, teachers: Anyone teaching (or reading) Atlas Shrugged may want to know about its definitive parody, found here:

https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/54707

Teachers (and students) familiar with the original will find the parody to be an astute critique of the original's style, themes, values, preoccupations, and philosophy.  Oh, and it's hilarious, too--unlike the original, in which, for over a thousand pages and 643,000 words, there is not a single bit of amusement or even one character, among dozens, with a decent sense of humor.

There's another parody of Atlas Shrugged that just came out, Atlas Snubbed.   It's humor is less heavy-handed, and the critique much sharper.  You can read the first 42 pages free via the website, www.AtlasSnubbed.com.
